paul September 3, 2010 (Pen Men at Work): Harvey Keitel happens to be the latest addition to the catalog of whispered substitutes for Steve Carell on ‘The Office’. Carell has enunciated that the program’s forthcoming seventh season will be his very last as branch manager, Michael Scott. ‘The Office’ happens to be an American comical as well as dramatic television series.

Paul Lieberstein has enacted the character of Toby in the program and also functions as one of its executive producers. He has declared to ‘E! News’ that Keitel is perhaps the only male, who can be the substitute character in ‘The Office’. He has been involved in television as well recently in ‘Life On Mars’ on ABC.

Who is Harvey Keitel? Keitel happens to be the 71-year-old experienced actor of ‘Taxi Driver’ and ‘Reservoir Dogs’. Lieberstein has divulged that he has not yet spoken to Keitel on the issue of substituting Steve Carell in ‘The Office’.

Lieberstein has uttered that he has not commenced negotiations with the agents of Keitel. However, he deemed that Keitel would execute a fabulous performance and would carry with him fresh energy and dynamism. He would be able to revitalize the show and take it to another level.

Lieberstein has asserted that he is sincere about Keitel taking over and becoming the face of the show. Lieberstein has declared that he was not interested in introducing another Michael, someone enacting a very analogous character, since he and the makers of ‘The Office’ had a massive amount of respect for Steve.

Keitel has largely enacted dramatic characters in his film career. Still, Lieberstein has mentioned that he deems that Keitel is capable of diversifying with respect to the roles he enacts. Lieberstein has stated that Keitel has the prowess to enact an assortment of characters, much more than what he has done so far. Comedy too can be embraced by him.

Lieberstein is enormously fascinated by the thought of the entry of Keitel in ‘The Office’. Lieberstein has already inscribed a sizable character for Keitel to enact. Lieberstein has vocalized that the character is of an elderly salesman, who believed that he could give up work. But, unexpectedly, the stock market collapses and he has to billow out of retirement to function for a few more years.

Ellie Kemper enacts the character of the receptionist named Erin in ‘The Office’. Ellie had mentioned to The Hollywood Reporter on Sunday at the Emmy Governors’ Ball that she had another character in her mind for substituting Carell. Her selection is Daryl, which is the character of a storehouse employee enacted by Craig Robinson. Daryl recently registered himself in management schooling on ‘The Office’.
